Our AHR will be a few weeks after we get back from our trip. Weâ€™re doing a cocktail party on a Friday night at a local banquet hall â€“ open bar, appetizers, some stations, dancingâ€¦ casual and open seating.
I got a fingerprint tree as our guestbook from Etsy seller YourKeepsakeCo
I made our centerpieces (hobby lobby, efavormart.com) and convinced the venue to let us bring our own table runners (BBcrafts.com), since they didnâ€™t have a color I liked. The finished ones will have sand in the bottoms of them.
Weâ€™re doing a candy buffet at the AHR, and itâ€™s been fun putting it together. I got a lot of the jars for our candy buffet at a flea market during a trip to Asheville, NC last Thanksgiving, averaging $2/jar. I also bought a few from Michaels, Goodwill and Salvation Army, and a couple were gifts from friends/family. I made the labels in PowerPoint. Some of the labels will hang on the jars and others will be tent cards.
I made a little sign for the basket for the cellophane treat bags (from Michaels).
I got most of the candy from
I got my thank you cards from Vistaprint, and I have used them for everything from my shower through AHR.
So thatâ€™s everything! Itâ€™s been a long 16 months of planning and waiting. We leave in 11 days, and it cannot come soon enough! Let me know if you have any questions!
